<p>Do you always wake up at the same time during night? Or you can’t fall asleep before a certain time no matter what? You are not feeling rested in the morning? Your dreams are horrific? Recurring thoughts are keeping you up? Etc….</p>

<p>That round, black disc in the background is a infrared lamp, which I almost always use on my patients! Today I am pointing it on my upper back and lungs, as I am feeling way to cold. Besides the benefits of infrared heat, it also feels amazing!!! </p>

<p>High Cholesterol? Now what? <br/><br/>DYK, the most important Sterol in humans is Cholesterol. It is part of the second largest group of lipids. <br/>For years we have been told that Cholesterol is bad. But consider this: Cholesterol is absolutely vital for the building, maintenance and fluidity of cell membranes! It is also the basis of estrogen, testosterone and other hormones and it is a major component of bile (which is used for the emulsification of fats). <br/><br/>LDL is considered to be bad if it is elevated, while HDL is considered to be the good type of Cholesterol. But why do people have an elevated LDL? Here is the reason: The body uses cholesterol like a bandage to fix and stabilize insured blood vessels. LDL and HDL are actually the cholesterol carriers that transport the cholesterol where it is needed. So LDL carries the cholesterols to the damaged sites, while HDL brings it back to the liver to be recycled. <br/><br/>Therefore, the reason why blood vessels get damaged in the first place is not the build-up of Cholesterol as many people think.

High Cholesterol? Now what?

So what damages blood vessels? For example: Chronically elevated blood sugar, smoking, environmental pollutants and also stress. 

The best way to reverse the “high cholesterol” symptoms is to address it by its roots: cut back sugars, processed foods, quit smoking, exercise and manage your stress.

Systemic and anti-inflammatory:

- Co-enzym 10

- MSM

- L-carnitin

- Omega 3s (krill oil, grape seed oil, flax seed oil, fish oil)
